On the way to the hot springs, pass by Yangpachen Monastery. Perched on a top of a hill, the monastery overlooks a range of Himalayan peaks. Visit the small chapels, admire the detailed protector deity murals in the main assembly hall, make a few offerings, and then head to Yangpachen town. In the early morning, mist rises from the geothermal lake, clouding the snow mountains in the background. Enjoy a soothing hot bath, relax your sore muscles, and then return to Lhasa.
